Since so many of us like to travel ( local or far) with our Chi babies, I thought it would be fun to share pics of all our doggie purses/carriers. I know lots have posted pics on various threads, but since so many of us have em, luv em, want more of em....let's share on one common thread! And maybe tell what you like or don't about your tote :)





So here is mine by Sherpa ( size large)--we have 2 navy & 1 green. 2 or 3 Chi's will fit in fine. My pack love it. I do for utility, however not for the incognito outing!:happy3:

Great idea for a thread Mel!!

We have 3 that we use, for different purposes.

For airline travel, we use the Teafco Argo. It fits under the seat in front and is built very sturdy, like luggage.





For our purse type carrier, we have a bag by Sherpa. It's a faux croc leather material. It's kind of stiff though, which is good because it doesn't accidentally collapse. It has mesh on the top and two sides which is hard to see through so it works great when you don't want anyone to know you have a dog with you.

See the ear? lol





Again, Mr. Ding Dong didn't want to cooperate unless he had his ball .....



And then we have this sling carrier by Kiki Hamann. I got it on one of her clearance sales. It's reversible and really well made. This carrier is great, very easy to use, he loves to ride in it, soft and comfortable.

Awesome bags Tracy aka Brodysmom! I have wondered about the KH bag as I know it can also carry 2! Love yours :)

PS: great photos... Of course he needs his ball, especially after you hung him from the door knob---lol!! :D Love him;)

I have 4 bags for Rocky.

This is a self-made bag (not by me though) which I use when I have to carry Rocky for a short time (i.e. when we go somewhere where it could get full at times).


We use a Trixie T-bag for the car at the moment (we buckle up Rocky and the bag seperately, but he is more comfy being in his bag than on the seat), which we used to use in the airplane.


We got a Sherpa Delta carrier for the airplane and we are really happy with it. Really perfekt to fly with (at least for us).


This one is a large Sherpa Classic Deluxe carrier which we initially got as a new car bag and thought of using as another carrier during flights as well. However, it seems too big for Rocky on his own and he doesn't really like going in it (guess because of it being too big for him, even though I bought it as I thought he would like the extra space :rolleyes:). So I will sell it again as we are unfortunately not using it (even though I was really happy about getting it as it is really nicely made).

Hey Melanie! :p

Here are Chanel's carriers. As you know my little girl is a tough cookie and
walks several hours per day. However for taxi travel I use these carriers.
We don't own a car so travel by taxi pretty often, whether it is to go see
the vet or go hike up north, a safe carrier is a must for the cab ride there.

I'll start with this one, because I strongly DISLIKE it! I ordered it without
seeing it in real life, and it was a big mistake. Now, I am a very flashy person,
I love earth tones, but I wear a lot of gold, I will wear Barbie pink no problem,
lol, but even for me this bag is too much! It looks and most importantly feels
horrible. It is not comfy for Chanel, and is not comfy on the shoulder.



I did not buy it from here, but this is a link to it...
Dog Carriers


This one is just amazing for travel, but is not good if you want to hide your
dog, because the little head has to stay out, otherwise there is no air.
It looks very stylish in real life, goes with pretty much anything, extremely
comfortable strap and very cozy for Chanel, I add a blanket and she loves it!



Once again I did not buy it from here, but here is a link for those who maybe want more info on it...
Dog Carriers, Pet Sling Carrier - Fundle Lux Camel


This one is pretty comfy for both dog and owner, but probably not for you
since I think you mentioned carrying two dogs in it. It is best for 8lbs and
under.



Here is a link...
Dolly Pet Carrier for small breeds


This one is oh so lovely! Perfect for bigger Chis or two Chis!
Mine is the "grande" one and it is HUGE, bigger than anything
I have seen on the market. I think even with the "petite" you
will still be able to carry 10 lbs worth of dogs(yours are 5lbs
and 5 lbs, right?) I really love that the entire carrier has tiny
unnoticeable breathing holes, it is very well ventilated.



I got mine from here, and am thrilled...
karli black pet carrier: Bitch New York - Designer Dog Carriers, Designer Dog Clothing


Last but definitely not least, this is my second favorite after the carrier
mentioned above. It is roomy, I bought a large and you can easily carry
10 lbs in it. It is so so cozy for the dog, has many cool features, looks
adorable, comes in black, brown, black and white, camel, all sorts of
gorgeous colors if you don't want gold. And has so many pockets that
you don't need to bring your purse! And the straps are comfortable!

I also have two carriers that are meant for airplane travel, but I have not
traveled by plane in a while so they are put away in a storage room, sorry
no pictures. Here are the links though...

I have this in tan color, it is a nice color, but HORRIBLE carrier...
Casual Canine Duffle Bag Pet Carriers | PetEdge.com
Not comfy, not nice looking, just all around very poor quality, waste of money.
(looks nothing like the pictures they show!)

The second air plane carrier I have is great, but can't remember the
name therefore can't find online picture, sorry.

And this is not for plane or taxi, I have this in pink, size small, which is
huge, I use it for when we travel to someone's house and Chanel needs
to be crated for whatever reason, or for camping.

HAHA first of all, I laughed out loud at the picture of Brody's head and his grey ball sticking out the top of the second to last bag. So funny. This thread is inspiring me to buy a carrier! When I have Odie out, she always walks, but I could see how in some situations it might come in handy. Does anyone have the soft "sling" type of carrier? Odie always likes to sleep curled up in a blanky in my lap, and anytime I want to get up, I end up carrying the blanket around.

Love all these pics everyone! I forgot that I have this bright Kelly green sling carrier. It is nice for new pups ( why I have it) or situations where you just need them quiet & with you. I keep it at my studio, so will get pic & post next week.

Is anyone using any backpack carriers? I have seen them advertised but not in use...it would be good for a man maybe....they need to be able to carry incognito too sometimes ( yes, referring to my hubby & his 2 Chi's :))

Thanks for making this a fun thread... :D
